Cornith's "Self-Portrait with his [Topless Young] Wife and a Glass of Champagne" (1902)

In 1901, Lovis Cornith, the German artist and writer, opened an all-girls private art school. Days later, 41-year-old Cornith fell in love with his very first student - 21-year-old Charlotte Berend whom he subsequently married after he painted her topless in Self-Portrait with his Wife and a Glass of Champagne (1902).
